The weather... It's a cloudy day, but a beautiful 70 degrees. No rain in the forecast. Much hotter temps coming later in the week.
Reading... I just finished the cozy mystery Buried in Bargains by Josie Belle. It's part of a series featuring the Good Buy Girls. It was a fun, easy read and I'll probably read more of them if I come across them (this one came from Goodwill).
Watching... Disney's Moana for, like, the thousandth time. Leah's here and it's her favorite. Or it's at least tied with Frozen II. I have to admit, it's become one of my all time favorite Disney movies.
And yes, that is Dwayne, the Rock, Johnson as the voice of Maui. If you want to see something really cute, look on YouTube for the video of him singing this song to his daughter.
Feeling... Great! I gave myself the second Ozempic injection yesterday and there's no overwhelming tiredness or queasy feeling this week.
Thinking... About all the training I have left to do for the new job. I spent 2 1/2 hours working on it on Saturday and that only got me through part one of section one. At least I passed the certificate exam on the first try. My entire afternoon today will go to more training. Gotta get it done or I can't start work.
Thankful... I had not too long ago come to the conclusion that the church I had been (sporadically) attending was probably not the one for me. It was far enough away that it wasn't terribly convenient and I just wasn't having any luck getting to know people and one of the big things I want in a church is a "family." I never got the sense that was how the church was. No one ever contacted me even after I filled out the information card and said I wanted them to. People never seemed to remember having met me before.
So, this week I decided to try a church closer to home. In fact, it's probably about 3 miles from the house. It's a CMA church, a denomination I'm somewhat familiar with. The first thing I noticed that made me happy....not a single mask in sight. I could see the faces and that, I think, is a huge help in connecting with new people. Second, the woman who greeted me was warm, friendly and made me feel very welcome.
The sermon was a good one on the responsibility of parents to give their children a spiritual blessing and it lined up with the Word. No tickle the ears stuff. The worship was uplifting and I was blessed that it was their Sunday to honor their high school and college graduates. So touching and moving to see the parents pray for their children. After the service the same woman who had greeted me invited me to the women's spring tea party next Saturday with the promise that she will sit with me and introduce me to everyone. Yay!
Loving... These two more than I could ever express.
Today... I kept Leah for a while while Megan had a doctor's appointment and picked up a few things at the store. I'm eating lunch as I do this. This afternoon HAS to be training for work. This evening Megan and I are going to work on pulling weeds in the mulched area by the deck and Tim is going to put the air conditioner in the window. It's going to be hot enough to need it by Wednesday.
This week... Bible study Tuesday evening, my second dose of vaccine on Wednesday, a doctor's appointment on Thursday for me and one on Friday for Tim, and the tea party on Saturday.
What's up in your neck of the woods?
